^^ true dat. Maybe even look into switching your tranny fluid to something a little better than stock, like Royal Purple or the like.
My car is manual so I dont have this worry, but I think Phoenix has the right idea. Probably going between 1&2 would be a good way to do it, since then you know the trany wont put you in the wrong gear coming out of a turn or something.
On a side note, If you ever end up getting an SCT Flasher, the software will allow you to adjust the shift points on your ATX.
